will be released at the beginning of october. so far, president obama is leading romney in the fundraising race. a director of the sunlight foundation tells first business that so far, the obama campaign has brought in around $730 million overall. mitt romney collected around $560 million in checks. bill allison of sunlight says the president's cash advantage has given his campaign more spending power. "what we're seeing is in part because of all of that fundraising advantage that obama has. he has a huge spending advantage too. so far, for the reports that we have, which is through the end of july, he's spent around $111 million on political ads. romney has spent overall $48 million. but about $18 million of that was to fend off opponents for the republican nomination. so romney has really only spent about $30 million making his case for the general election." allison notes that spending on political ads may have helped obama in some swing states including ohio, where he leads in the polls. both candidates are campaigning in one such swing state today - florida. high-speed trading is getting a

it was hard to contain, but also harder to get a sense of exactly how many there were." president obama is calling on the world trade organization to settle a trade case with china. the obama administration is accusing china of unfairly subsidizing exports of cars and car parts. the president says it gives chinese manufacturers an unfair advantage in the market. cars.com analyst joe wiesenfelder tells first business that if the world trade organization accepts the action, the impact to consumers could mean higher prices. "i don't think companies export jobs or buy parts from foreign companies because they want to, they do it because there is a profit advantage to it. so if this action goes through and the chinese are no longer subsidizing the parts that are important, it could raise the prices." meanwhile, the topic of trade is coming more in focus on the campaign trail.
